In the Collins ceramics lab we offer everything you may need to make beautiful pieces of pottery. We provide the clay, a huge selection of glazes, a fully functioning electric kiln, and seven electric wheels, all of which are already included in your Collins activity fee. In addition to the materials, our knowledgeable student coordinators can teach you everything you need to know, whether you want to make gifts for family and friends or become a pro on the wheel. We offer a selection of weekly open lab hours where our coordinators are present as well as an option to be trained for a key list, meaning you can come to the lab any time you want. We also offer several events each semester ranging from a bowl drive to benefit a local nonprofit to holiday gift-making workshops in the winter. The Collins ceramics lab is, without a doubt, a place unlike any other on campus. It is a place to relax, a place to socialize, and a place to express yourself in a fun and new way.
